It amazes me how much he can do when I work with him 1:1. He used to spend all day in school and we did homework for almost 4 hours a night most nights. He spent his entire time working. He did not get to enjoy being a child. There was no time to play. I get the learning disabilities and Aspergers play a huge part of that learning curve, but it is not fair to not allow a child to spend some time to just be a kid. We accomplish more now in a few hours than I could grant him by being the homework nazi mom I was becoming.
I realize in teaching him now and learning alongside with him, that I would do anything for this child to help him learn and be productive in life.
Our septic tank was finally repaired today. It is much nicer to be able to wash clothes and such again. My next outdoor project now that the chickens have a house and the compost is built is to get a clothesline for outside in the backyard.
My new objective in the next few years is to make us more equipped for off the grid life and living. I know many think I am nuts for this. It is so expensive to get your home established like this. I do not know where such funds would come from. I want a windmill and solar panels...lots of solar panels.
The tomato slips are starting to come along.
